  •  Obama made a pro forma statement (0+ / 0-)

    ...likely to quiet Israel down to the effect that the actual use of chemical weapons crossing a red line as far as the US is concerned.  That statement is intended to also deter Assad.

    But as I said above, Assad's use of chemical weapons against the FSA or other opposition risks also affecting supporters of the regime.  They are not segregated by politics in the cities.

    My sense is that the President is handling this with a great deal of restraint and letting events unfold without the usual practice of bigfooting US power.
